Great location for the Royal festival hall with only a few minutes walk. Very friendly helpful staff. Nice clean rooms with ensuite shower room, would be a problem if you find it hard to walk up a few flights of stairs. Good bar menu but it can be a bit hard to find a table to eat at. breakfast ok...

Stayed at the Wellington for one night, pub looked grea, top floor so lots of steps, room was small but very nice, there was a bit of road noise from drunk people shouting etc but I knew that was a risk before booking, all in all a great hotel for the price.

It's just outside Waterloo station so is ideally located for pre rugby drinks before catching the train to Twickenham. It's got all the usual offerings at reasonable for London prices and although we didn't sample the food it all looked ok.

This hotel is very centrally located to all the top attractions in London. The prices were very fair for a city hotel. The rooms were adequate. However, try to get a room on a lower floor, as there is no elevator and the stairs are quite narrow & steep. Breakfast was included. It is part of a pub and near... More

We chose this hotel for location which was close to Underground, walkable to London Eye, Westminster Abbey, Tower of London, shopping, pubs & restaurants. The "reception desk" was a window at the end of a long bar. There are no elevators (lifts) to the rooms so you'd better have small bags or large muscles. Our room was on the 3rd... More

Stayed here for a few nights before flying out of Gatwick and it is in the perfect place to see all the sights if you only have a short time. Crackign breakfast in the morning and reasonably priced beer ( for London). Despite being above the pub the room was quiet and the beds were great.
